system. i don't think it's necessary. traditional self-defense is what is the standard of justice and it should be across this nation. the thought that you don't have to remove yourself from a violent situation if you can. you can just escalate that violence is unheard of for me. the numbers have increased tremendously since stand your ground has been in place in florida. >> what about the african-american reaction to the verdict? is there justifiable outrage there? >> i think there's justifiable outrage because the case was sort of botched from day one. let me say it similar to what the president said. if there's anyone in this country that believes that trayvon martin, if he had been of age could have walked around the neighborhood with a gun, legal, stalking george zimmerman or anyone who was a white person escalate a confrontation, shoot and kill that person and not be arrested that's outrageous. that's absolutely ludicrous. if you just flip the script you know how silly that sounds. an 18-year-old black kid walking around in a hoodie with a legal weapon, he can't follow someb

under title 51, national defense, chapter 36, foreign intelligence surveillance, chapter 4, roman numeral 4, section 1861. so paragraph 3 after 2, says an investigation conducted in this section shall not be conducted by -- of a u.s. person solely on the basis of activities protected by the first amendment, we get to paragraph 3. and this was an issue that was very contentious. there were groups boycotting and demonstrating and saying, hey, this is all about library books. we don't want the bush administration being able to go in and get a list of books we have read. well, i contended then and still contend now that to do such a thing of an american citizen you should have to have probable citizen an american has violated the law and get a warrant to do that. but this didn't require a warrant. this allowed under the patriot act if it was for foreign intelligence purposes and for international terrorism investigations, according to the title, but unfortunately in the law itself it said or to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities. i tell pe

that did not work in sanford, florida, dealing with stand your ground. dealing with the self-defense that winds up people who are wanting to not do right can use to avoid prosecution. one thing we have to concede is we're not getting killed with a fist. we're getting killed with guns in the wrong hands and bullets. and you have to ask yourself, where are these coming from. so the justice working group and the congressional black caucus, we're hearing all of that, is going to ask the hard questions, produce legislation, and also seek the resources because there's nothing wrong as asking as bobby has said, let children be the priority on the federal level that deals with education and summer jobs. and i will leave to the expert about how the gangs are moving around, whether it's turf, whether it's drugs. whether it's one gang against another. but we do know people are dying. and i think we need to leave here with the burden of the members who put together an omnibus, an emergency plan and funding. and i can tell you no one up here is a wallflower. and that this will be heard next week

'm not so sure that this defense well, i told you more was going to come out. we put this behind us, is going to work because the idea that he said that more of this stuff was going to come out the assumption was that these were sort of while he was in congress. i never -- shame on me, but i never thought he might have been referring to stuff after he had allegedly gone and sort of addressed his issue and need to have the online relationships. this was less than a year ago. >> bill: huma said i've forgiven him and you should, too. >> i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. and as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward. >> bill: we are moving forward. she says. i've forgiven him. well, i'm glad she has and i admire her for doing so. he did have a code name here. he wasn't using -- this woman knew who he was. she says that. he knew he was a former member of congress. and she thought -- she had no problem with that. but anyhow, just so other people didn't pick up on who he was in case they saw the photos, selfies he was sending. he was using the name carlos d

. try fixodent. it helps create a food seal defense for a clean mouth and kills bacteria for fresh breath. ♪ fixodent, and forget it. >>> i want to bring in a guest you may have heard of, melissa harris perry. we also have jane hall, former fox news contributor on their show "fox news watch." so, there's a lot to get here. i want to start with the steve king comments this week. like we said, the fact that he authored this amendment that passed a couple months ago that would basically undo obama's executive order on the children of illegal immigrants, it suggests this is a comment -- we should add, too, steve king was asked on fox about the comment yesterday. he said, my colleagues are standing by me. they come up to me constantly. so, this sounds like a lot of republicans are smart enough not to talk about way but he's channelling an attitude that's a lot more prevalent than just steve king. >> i think that's right. gop congressmen across the board are hostile to measures that would increase the amount of -- or decrease the amount of immigration, period. last year, i don't know i
